August Favorites

No Comments »

August was a challenging month for me. In the midst of all the chaos, I did find time for myself and enjoyed this month. I've been so much into blue eyeliners and orange-red lipsticks lately. My skin care routine also changed.
I got an indoor tree. 🌿
 It's a ruffled fan palm and I just love it. I never knew having an indoor plant could be so appeasing.
Also it was really hard for me to dress winter. I can't, it doesn't suit me and doesn't feel right. I'm glad that Summer is making its way back! The weather is getting hotter day by day already.



First let's have a look at my most worn accessories.
I adore the bohemian bracelets that I got from Chrubs. I used these as a pop of color to my outfits.

I've been obssessed with this ankle bracelet the whole month. The shell along with the green beads are a constant reminder of the beach to me. I would love to craft some ankle bracelets.

             

The crown ring was my go to accessory.
Forget about the ring, let us have a look at the awesome red lipstick.
Wait it's an orange red shade, and looks gorgeous paired with blue eyeliners. It's the Maybelline Colorsensational bold lipstick in Orange Danger 883. Love the name, the shade & texture! 
It pops like crazy in selfies. I guarantee that. You can't go unnoticed wearing this shade! 😂










                       

The mild papaya peeling is from Thefaceshop. This product is amazing. I get a better result when I use the cleansing foam mung bean first. (which is from the same brand) I have to pat my face dry after that because the peel should be used on dry face and massaged for 30 secs. My skin feels lighter, & smoother after the peel. Then I proceed with my regular moisturising routine. I have a combination skin and I've really seen results using the peel once a week. It got rid of some pimple scars on my face and I'm really happy with this purchase. Let me know if you'd like a review on this product!

        

I've been longing for a pair of bright fuchsia heels for many months. I finally got the perfect pair back in July. There was a big sale at Aldo and I went crazy that day. I got these heels for 890 MUR.
The cut outs on the inner side make them sexier. I also love the fish scale texture and that it's not plain fuchsia. Plus they are really comfy.

That's it for my August favorites! I wish you all a lovely September.
There are four months left for this year to end, let's make them memorable!

Seashell Display

4 Comments »

Remember when I shared a coastal trip from Pointe aux Roches to La Prairie? I collected some seashells on that day. I had the idea of making a collection display and got the perfect bowl for that.
 Stay with me, we'll have a walk along the beach, collect seashells to complete this decor idea! 


Finding intact seashells is very hard but I did get lucky at times. 


The sea was rough on that day and many corals and debris were washed on the shore.






This one is so tiny and cute.


I love abalone shells, simply because of their shiny colors on the inside. It's very different from the others.


Let's get to the display now!
First I made sure that the sand was dry enough or else this would have been a mess, with it sticking to the glass. Next I poured the sand and tapped the bowl to settle everything evenly. (Also I flipped the bowl upside down, it looks better this way.)
The big shells went in first and then the small ones. Luckily my hands fit in the sides of the bowl and I was able to place all of the them correctly.


Gladly the shell on this coral didn't budge at all, even when I tapped the bowl. I spent some time filling the gaps and got a little creative.





Here's the final result! 
The big coral on the top is big enough that it doesn't slide to the bottom. 



This was simple. The right decor makes a big difference. For instance, I love sea related stuffs, big green leaves and wood because it makes me feel more peaceful and happy.

Cap Malheureux

No Comments »

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Cap Malheureux village, is the red roofed church of Notre Dame Auxiliatrice. The church, the jetty with the white sand and the view of many Islets, altogether make this place very breathtaking. It's a popular tourist attraction. We will go around the beach starting from the jetty.

The island right in front is "Ile aux Serpents". If you have good eyes, you'll notice "Ile Ronde" next to it.

Next time, I'll take a nice front picture of the church with the sea view at the back.



The day I was there, people were buying fresh fish on the roadside and they would bring it here to be cleaned up by this lady. She was very kind to let me take this shot. 


This fish is a Yellow-Edged Lyretail and its common name here is "Croissant Queue Jaune".
Some people got me really confused by saying this was a "Vieille Rouge".




 I have lots and lots of pictures of Coin de Mire Island but Flat Island (which is to the right) is more noticeeable in these. 
I got both in the same frame here.





Here we are facing the jetty with the church at the back. 
Wow! I love this place. I have no doubt that you have enjoyed this little tour. 
Stay tune for the next post

My Winter Wardrobe

No Comments »

Hi! Winter is less harsh this year. It's mostly sunny here during the day. Mornings and evenings are colder. The weather is very unpredictable.
I did add some new pieces to my wardrobe these last months to cope with the changing climate. The first things that I got, were good quality tights from Woolworths. They were three for 400 MUR and I needed these for work. The rest of the items below were all bought form Jennyfer except for the teal and boho top.

The one trend I really wanted to try for this winter, is the choker top. Actually, I got this shirt during summer but the choker was a bit unbearable back then. The leopard face along with the choker looks very badass.


This second top is in teal and it’s slimmer with a small turtleneck. The collar have buttons at the back, it's like a choker. I've worn it once to work paired with light pink pants. Body and Soul had the same in black and red too but this color pairs perfectly with my burgundy blazer.


 

This is the most wintery clothing and the only knitted garment that I have. It has the cold shoulder details and the pink color was what really caught my eye at first. The length is a bit long. I really adore this cute sweater though it kinda looks like a dead squid on the hanger right now.


 

This jacket is one of my favorites. The military green color does match with almost all my tops. I like how the inside fabric is of a different color. Body and Soul too had a really pretty bomber jacket on sale but I don't think it would have matched most of my looks since it had colorful floral details on the front. 
This jacket and the leopard shirt above really pairs up nicely.



This gold pleated top is so pretty. I'm in love with it. I paired it once with off white pants, bright fuchsia lips, aqua earrings and pale blue heels with my hair down. I loved this outfit. 
If you're looking for something new to add into your winter wardrobe, a metallic top or skirt would be awesome.



The last item is a cozy boho top that I just got from Islandhaze. I like how the neckline details goes down the top and the tassels make everything perfect. The sleeves do not go all the way down to the wrists.


As for pants, I haven't got anything new this winter. Mostly because I have some already.

This post was fun. In the next one, I'll be taking you exactly to the North of Mauritius. It's always hotter in the northern part of the island. The weather there really suits me. Maybe I should move there from the Central Plateau. Haha...not gonna happen! 

The choker Top...Small Turtleneck...Knitted Sweater...The Bomber Jacket...
Metallic Gold...Boho Top
